What would be a really good blues harmonica to buy?

my mom bought me a basic $5 harmonica and it's played better days and am going to buy a new one. and was wondering what kind of harmonica would be best to play blues with?

"really good" is subjective but there are some that you'll notice very many pros reach for and there must be some good reason that the pros like them.

In no particular order:

Hohner: Marine Band 1896, Special 20, Blues Harp
Lee Oskar: any major diatonic
Suzuki: BluesMaster, Manji
Seydel: Session
Hering: Blues, Vintage 1923

Any of these is a "really good" blues harp. All have pros and cons depending on your personal tastes. I like the sound of the Marine Band's wooden comb. I also like the traditional look and feel of that particular model. That's just my taste though. I have a friend who really much prefers the Lee Oskar - that's just his taste. A lot of beginning and intermediate players like the ease of care of the Special 20's plastic comb over the Marine Band, etc... It's all a matter of what you're looking for in a harp.

Hohner and Lee Oskar are probably easiest to find the most options of. Hohner is easy to find just about anywhere in the world.

C is a good place to start unless you have a reason to need something else. I tend to like the sound of lower harps so reach for a G or A if key doesn't matter. Some people like the brighter wail around C and D. Most people find the Eb and F too high pitched and piercing. Pick the key you like (or need) and go from there - understanding that you'll eventually want 12 to play in all keys.

This is a good time to consider harp features you'd like to have. If while playing that cheap harp you've noticed things you wish were there; now is when you find them. For example: if you've said, "I wish this was easier to bend" then you might want one known to bend easily. If you've said, "wow, I like this really bright tone" then wood probably isn't going to make you as happy as plastic. Or, if you've said, "I wish it sounded warmer like that recording of [old blues wailer]" then wood may well be exactly what you're after. Ever wish for 4 more holes on the right? Some people do. Marine Band 365 has exactly that. Ever wish you had a straight scale down on the bottom with an F and an A down there for folk songs - scaled tuned Marine Band 364s. Ever wish your crossharp 7th was tuned a 1/2 step sharp? Country tuned diatonic harps. There are all sorts of options to consider once you learn to play.

You can't go wrong with one of the Hohners (MB, Sp20, BluesHarp) or the Lee Oskar in C though if you just want a general duty blues wailer until you learn more-and-more about specifications you prefer.

Happy Harping! ♪♫♪
